Prices can never be defined in advance when dealing with workshop exhaust fans. Instead, other variables come into play: the type of service centre, the number of work stations and the building features.
When choosing a workshop exhaust extraction system, prices are significant; yet the costs are not fixed and depend on the size, features and type of installation.
Prices are mainly affect by 3 parameters:
- The type of service centre, because the amount of exhaust depends on whether the centre is a workshop or body shop;
- The number of work stations, since the more work stations in the shop (or more vehicles simultaneously in maintenance), the higher the required exhaust capacity;
- Building features, for example when, for aesthetic or space optimisation reasons, a visible system cannot be installed, an underfloor system is preferred.
Let's take a closer look.
Workshop exhaust fans: the cheapest
Among the cheapest exhaust extraction systems are the stand alone systems, designed for small workshops. It does not require actual installation: they are portable fans, easily moved from one place to the next. The WORKY range includes 4 portable fans:
- for cars
- for vans
- for motorcycles
- for lorries.
In addition to being the cheapest, this type of fan does not require a flue on the roof.
Middle price range
Middle range workshop exhaust extraction systems are fixed systems, suited for medium-sized workshops with a few work stations, concentrated in a restricted area.
A fixed system is made up of a permanent installation: the extraction nozzles applied to vehicle mufflers extract exhaust and, through reinforced rubber hoses or extraction arms, convey exhaust to the galvanised hoses. Galvanised hoses end at the roof flue and are designed to extract exhaust without leaks or infiltrations.
High price range
Lastly, the most expensive exhaust extraction systems are sliding systems. Despite being in the top price range, sliding systems are in high demand in large workshops due to their flexibility.
In fact, sliding elements can quickly and easily reach all work stations with the highest emissions; what's more, when not used, the sliding system remains hanging over the work stations without hindering work.
